Welcome to Alberta's North!

Alberta's North, known to some as Canada's outback, is relatively untamed. But winding through the acres of Alberta's North wilderness are many highways, connecting little (and some not so little) pockets of civilization where the spirit of explorers, pioneers, trappers and hunters still lives on. Visit Fort McMurray, a booming town that boasts a precious reserve of oil sands as its claim to fame. Nearby Wood Buffalo National Park offers natural tranquility and once-in-a-lifetime encounters with bison and wolves. Farther west is the Peace River region, with important communities like Grande Prairie, a thriving agricultural community, and High Level, gateway to the Northwest Territories and home to Canada's most northerly grain elevator. Outdoor activities, including snowmobiling, dog sledding, ATVing and cross country skiing, are especially popular in Northern Alberta. Hunters will relish the big game opportunities in this vast region, which offer chances at elk, deer, bear and moose, to name a few.
